Why an Austin, TX new-home purchase beats a resale

Nov 6, 2019

Preparing for the next big life adventure – the purchase of a new home – takes careful investigation and pertinent information.

You may be considering a new location with a more-relaxed lifestyle, meeting new friends and adding outdoor hiking, boating and fishing to your routine. All of this will be available soon at Gregg Ranch, the newest master-planned community in Marble Falls, Texas.

Soon you will be surrounded by a sea of information as you begin this exciting journey. Among those decisions is new vs. resale. We offer several reasons why purchasing a new home might be the best decision you ever make, and if you’re looking near Austin, we’d love to you have you visit Gregg Ranch at Marble Falls.

  1. Up-to-date designs: You’ll find fresh floor plans and finishes when purchasing new. You won’t have to compromise or settle for what was popular a decade ago. You can treat yourself to those desired in-demand options like retractable glass walls, walk-in closets and high ceilings.
  2. Efficiency: New homes are more energy efficient and offer new technology options. This can lower your monthly bills. Even a difference of five years newer can make a difference.
  3. Warranty: No need to worry about expensive repairs when you have warranties throughout your new home. You can focus on decorating and furnishing it as soon as you move in.
  4. Accountability: New homes are built by licensed professional craftsmen, who are held accountable for their work. You won’t have to deal with cheap workmanship done by previous owners.
  5. Personalization: No need to settle for “what you see is what you get.” You can build the home of your dreams, with specific options and functionality built just for your lifestyle.
  6. Neighborhood: You can live in a master-planned community with new amenities. Older neighborhoods often don’t have the conveniences offered today.
  7. Loan Qualification: Qualifying for a mortgage with a resale home sometimes can turn up hidden surprises. Often securing a mortgage for a new home is a smoother process.
